      Description

      It would be useful to have a way to get the list of supported AEAD ciphers.

      The concrete use case is a library that uses crypto_one_time internally, but lets the user configure which cipher is used. Right now we have no way to validate that the cipher suite passed by the user is supported by crypto_one_time besides hardcoding the list of AEAD ciphers.

      I think this could either be an aead_ciphers option to crypto:supports, or an additional attribute in the map returned by crypto:cipher_info.
